I have a white MacBook that is having issues with charging. I bought this used and they said it would charge a battery but it won't. I've tried all the keyboard options for resetting PRAM adn other stuff, holding down power button. It lights ups the power adapter, but so faint you can barely see it. I work in a tech center as a tech so we had a MacBook and I tried its adapter and it did the same thing. I thought the battery was junk so I ordered a new one and it won't charge it either. If you have the machine powered on and remove the battery, it knows there is no battery so it is getting power back to the battery. I've ruled out chargers/batteries so it has to be magsafe or battery connetor, or logic board. As long as you leave it plugged in to an outlet it works fine, but as soon as you disconnect the adapter it is dead. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have it tore apart right now again and I have a volt meter if I need to check any read outs. This is a white macbook Build 9L31a.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
